It’s time for my April Wrap Up! [My first one ^-^]
This month I was actually able to read quite a few books! I was so worried that because I was moving halfway through the holidays that would mean I would read less but it was actually the complete opposite; because I was moving I had no wifi for just over a week which meant I actually read loads!
Books I Read:
I gave this book a 5 stars; Rainbow Rowell’s writing never ceases to amaze me. The characters in this book were so relatable it got to the point I was trying to see how the main character was anything but like me! This was a funny and sweet read certainly something for any nerdy ‘fangirl’! (See what I did there?)
I gave this book a 4 stars! I went into this book with extremely high expectations and it met most of them! I feel like it was a very original layout and story-line the main character was just a bit dry. This is a perfect read for people who enjoy horror; or who just find it hard to focus on reading for a long time!
The Enemy series is one of my favourite: all the adults are gone, zombie apocalypse-esque series that I’ve ever read. Therefore, I wasn’t surprised at all when I gave this book a 5 stars; this book is really a writing masterpiece in my opinion; it’s writing brings the phrase ‘paints a picture in the readers mind’ to life.
This book was a re-read for me so I didn’t expect the rating to go down because the first time I read it I was absolutely stunned. This book was my first Patrick Ness and I got it at a signing; it didn’t fail to amaze me and got a 5 star rating! This book was just so overwhelmingly amazing to read again; I absolutely loved it!
This book marked the end of my Rainbow Rowell book binge and unfortunately it was the only one of her full length books that got a four stars! I loved the plot; and I loved the characters; I loved everything about this book – until I read the end. The ending felt very rushed to me and I just didn’t like it… But this book was still an amazing book to read and certainly wasn’t at all a bad book.
This short story released for World Book Day 2016 was unfortunately for me a book that I couldn’t bring myself to like very much. I liked the plot to a certain extent but overall it just gave a very shallow impression to me. I ended up giving it a 3.
I gave this book a four stars and with good reason! The writing was hilarious and I really liked the main character; but I absolutely detested the two secondary main characters they were stereotypical to the point I felt I’d read them somewhere else. This book is a great book to read when you’re in a bad mood and just want a laugh though!
This book was an emotional roller coaster. It was a beautiful story about accepting yourself and learning to heal; and had just as amazing writing to match. Something to read on a rainy day; I guarantee this book will bring you tears and deserved all 5 stars it got!
This was an energetic and fast paced read which was a great choice to end a month of reading with! This series is amazing and certainly one I would recommend to anyone looking for a book that will make their heart race; I gave this book a four stars but only because I felt it didn’t compare to the likes of the first and second books in this series!
